Cougar Town Spoilers: Laurie To Give Birth At The Start Of Season 6

With Busy Philipps’ real-life pregnancy taking place prior to the start of Cougar Town‘s sixth season, writers decided to include it in the storyline for her character.

TVLine confirms that Laurie will give birth when the season begins and that the character’s reaction will mirror Busy’s reaction to her real life experience.

“I have this reaction — on the show and in real life — where if I hold a newborn child, I start to cry and I can’t stop,” Philipps told “[I felt like] it actually happened [again].”
